Blue Jays hopeful Jose Reyes, Devon Travis will play Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:32 pm ET) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is hopeful shortstop Jose Reyes (rib) and second baseman Devon Travis (rib) will be able to play Tuesday against the Orioles, according to SportsNet.

Reyes has been out since Friday with the injury and is expected to be re-evaluated before the game Tuesday. He is hitting .324 with five RBI in 37 at-bats. Travis left Sunday's game after being hit by a pitch in the first inning. The team later confirmed Travis does not have a fracture to his rib. 

He currently leads the team with a .356 batting average in 45 at-bats.


Nationals CF Denard Span says he's 'full strength' after return
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:29 pm ET) Denard Span made his season debut for the Nationals on Sunday after missing the first 12 games with a core injury, and made his presence felt quickly with a hit and run scored, per MASN Sports. 

Span's return to the lineup came sooner than many expected, and after playing his first game in months, the center fielder said he's nearly 100 percent, although he admitted being a bit winded after scoring from second base on a hit.

"I think I'm full strength. I'm not as quick as I was last year, I guess, (at) this time," Span said. "It's still a process. I am going to continue to get stronger, I think, as time goes on, but I feel good running."

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:09 pm ET) Rockies starting pitcher Eddie Butler (1-1) allowed two runs on six hits in five innings against the Dodgers on Sunday and took the loss.

Butler's runs were surrendered in the second inning on consecutive RBI doubles from Scott Van Slyke and Joc Pederson

Butler returns to the mound on Friday against the Giants.

Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy moves to 2-0 with six strong innings
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:06 pm ET) Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy (2-0) scattered three hits, all singles, and did not give up a run in six innings in his win over the Rockies on Sunday.

McCarthy fanned six in the victory.

McCarthy's next start is set for Friday in San Diego.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7:04 pm ET) Closer Luke Gregerson continued his solid start to the season, notching his second save of the year in the Astros' 4-3 win over the Angels on Sunday. 

Gregorson still hasn't allowed an earned run this season and only needed nine pitches to retire the side in order in the bottom of the ninth.  


Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt connects for fifth homer of season
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(6:58 pm ET) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt connected for his fifth home run of the season on Sunday, pulling even with the Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez for the lead in the National League.

Goldschmidt went 1 for 3 with two runs scored in the D-Backs' win.


3B Luis Valbuena delivers for Astros
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6:56 pm ET) Luis Valbuena had a big day for the Astros in their 4-3 triumph over the Angels on Sunday, reaching base three times and connecting for his third home run of the season. 

Valbuena got the Astros on the board in the third inning when he tagged a pitch by Garrett Richards over the wall in left for a 353-foot homer to make it 2-0 Houston. Valbuena also walked twice and stole a base.


Giants starter Tim Hudson knocked around on Sunday in loss
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(6:56 pm ET) Giants starter Tim Hudson (0-2) was knocked around for five earned runs in five innings on Sunday and suffered the loss to the Diamondbacks.

He allowed six hits while striking out six.

Paul Goldschmidt got things going early for the D-Backs with a two-run homer off Hudson in the first inning.

Hudson's next scheduled start is Saturday in Colorado.

Diamondbacks' Jeremy Hellickson throws 6 2/3 solid innings for win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(6:54 pm ET) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson (1-2) picked up his first win of the season on Sunday, holding the Giants to one run on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings.

Hellickson struck out two and walked one in the victory.

The only run allowed by Hellickson was a sacrifce fly in the second inning.

Hellickson will try to even his record next Sunday, April 26, against the Pirates.


Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker looking for more velocity
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:54 pm ET) Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker is throwing well to begin the season, posting a 2-0 record in two starts. But Shoemaker is continuing to look for improvements, mostly for more velocity on his fastball, according to MLB.com.

"For me, that's usually how it is," said Shoemaker. "I feel like early on in the season, with any season, I get stronger. I don't feel anything different. I think it's just the strength and getting into a rhythm."

Shoemaker is averaging 88.9 mph on his fastball this season after averaging 91.3 in 2014. Shoemaker thinks it is mostly about his recent weight loss.

"That's what it usually does. I'm not very far off, which is a good thing - but it is kind of funny how quickly I can regain the weight.

"I feel like when I'm at that weight, there's more there, just because there's more behind the ball and I have more strength."
